NBA All-Star Game – best dunks, skills and action from Team LeBron vs. Team Durant

The 2021 NBA All-Star Game festivities are tonight in Atlanta. Due to COVID-19, it’s all happening Sunday. That’s right, all the skills, all the scoring, all the 3s and all the dunks in one night.

It’s Team LeBron vs. Team Durant with LeBron James and Kevin Durant serving as captains. They drafted their teams earlier this week. The Utah Jazz, the team with the NBA’s best record, had Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert picked last.

Sunday’s festivities started with some drama as Philadelphia 76ers’ All-Stars Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons were ruled out of the game after coming in contact with a barber who later tested positive for the coronavirus.
